the bunker and rescued the child. >> reporter: in a matter of minute, just after 3:00 p.m., agents used an explosive charge to blow open the entrance. they killed dykes, before taking the boy to a nearby hospital by ambulance. abc news has learned in the course of a week-long standoff, the fbi had created this mock bunker near the site. and had been using it to train for different scenarios to get the boy out. monday's raid was not the ending police had thought. they spent days negotiating with the decorated vietnam veteran, through a ventilation shaft. when the talks finally broke down, police say they had no other choice but to catch dykes by surprise. incredibly, ethan's mother had asked police days ago, not to kill dykes. >> she put her hand on the officer's heart and said, sir, don't hurt him. he's sick. >> reporter: you know, friends and family tell us that little ethan is a boy that loves to be hugged. and you can bet, he's getting those hugs today. >> thanks, gio. >>> joining us are ethan's great aunt and uncle. take us back to that moment when you first heard he was safe. >> i
reporting of certain activity in the air above the scene of what was happening. can you tell us about that? >> reporter: sure. well, there was aerial surveillance going on. now, these negotiators have been on the scene since last week. we know the fbi took over the investigation last week, and we know that they've been trying to figure out kind of the layout of dykes' property. now, the aerial surveillance, when an fbi team comes in like this, they obviously have different methods that they use to get a clearer picture of what exactly is going on. we were able to confirm with a federal law enforcement official that the small aerial aircraft that we've been seeing kind of circling the property in the morning, that that was a surveillance aircraft. so that's what we've been seeing the last few days, and again police have been very tight-lipped and haven't said exactly what they have been finding or what the location -- or what the layout of dykes' property has been. >> gabe gutierrez, thank you so much. sorry -- you need to stay there, sorry, gabe. i wanted to ask you one more question conce
dykes is dead. killed in the raid that freed that little boy. they used secret cameras to watch dykes, noticed he was acting erratically and that time may had been running out. victor blackwell is live. what a relief for this family. victor, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, brooke. yes, not only for the family, but for the entire community. people across the country, even in other countries, were following this story, and commenting and praying that they were hoping ethan would be able to come home soon. two reasons why this happened when it did. first, we're told that communications with jimmy lee dykes broke down in the day leading up to the raid and the more important reason, they saw he had a gun and he had to go in when they did to save ethan. ethan is safe. this is a photograph of the 5-year-old being taken to a hospital after being held hostage for nearly a week in an underground bunker in midland city, alabama. >> he is doing fine. he's laughing, joking, playing, eating. things that you would expect a normal 5 to 6-year-old young man to do. he's very brave. he's very l

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: incredible. >> i love larry, by the way. i do love him. >> jimmy: of course, who wouldn't want to have sex with larry? >> i started laughing because the whole situation was like out of a bad lifetime mov
, everyone. i'm randi kaye, glad you're with us. we begin this morning with news about the shooting death of a former nav former naval s.e.a.l. chris kyle was killed yesterday along with another person at a gun range near ft. worth, texas. local newspapers also confirm the death. wfaa reports a former marine suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder is being held in connection with the shootings. these are pictures of kyle taken from the security company kraft international. kyle recounted his four combat tours in iraq in his book "american sniper." his more than 150 sniper kills had them placing a bounty on his head. most recently he appeared on the reality show "stars earn stripes" and conan o'brien show. >> you were so well known by the iraqi insurgents that they put a $20,000 bounty on your head, is that right? >> yes, sir. >> how did the iraqi insurgents identify who you were? >> when i'd go into a house and we had occupied houses, i would take the top of my uniform off and just have my short sleeve shirt on and youed and see my tattoo coming down my arm and they identified that w
jonathan karl tells us about the news today. >> reporter: by one count, president obama has already used unmanned cia drones to strike more than 300 suspected terrorist targets, even more than his predecessor. but today, we learned just how much authority the administration believes it has to kill, without trial or evidence, suspected terrorists, even american citizens. a newly disclosed justice department document says american citizens tied to al qaeda can be killed, if, "an informed, high-level official believes the target poses an imminent threat." but the document says it "does not require the government to have clear evidence." case in point, anwar al awlaki, an american citizen and top al qaeda leader, linked to several terrorist attacks. he was killed in a 2011 drone strike. human rights advocates say the justice department memo goes way too far. and -- >> justifies essentially a claim that the executive branch can be judge, jury and executioner. >> reporter: as soon as he became president, barack obama stopped cia tactics like waterboarding that he considered torture. but this j
assessment of what went wrong and what exactly happened. >> i know you're trying to get us the actual details here. what do we know about his girlfriend, reeva steenk. mp? . >> reporter: i was just on her twitter page and it's quite sad to read the twitter page of somebody who died just a few hours ago. on it she describes herself as a model, a law graduate and a child of god. what we do see through her twitter feed is that it appears she went to a promotional party last night for a car launch and a lot of people were excited. there's a picture of her up there. she's a very beautiful blond woman and she was also just recently in the celebrity pages of one of the sunday newspapers. the couple were a bit of a celebrity couple here in south africa. we do know that. in terms of what happened, what transpired, it's tragic either way. one family has lost a sister, a daughter, of course, oscar pistorius, the big question now is the implications for his career. he was supposed to race in march. it's highly unlikely he'll be taking to the track by then. >> do we know if steenkamp and pistorius lived t
. the source describes them as crude pipe bombs. one in the bunker and the other in the pipe that police used to communicate with jimmy lee dykes, who demanded two children on a school bus before killing the driver, charles poland. he wanted attention, even asking police negotiators for a tv reporter to interview him. by monday, when they saw dykes hold i holding a gun, using a secret camera they somehow had managed to sneak inside, they were ready. they swooped in, throwing a stun grenade down the bunker's hatch. the police source says dykes fired his gun once. the team returned fire, killing dykes and freeing ethan. ethan's mother said i woke up for the first time in almost a week to a beautiful sight, my sweet boy. i can't describe how incredible it is to hold him again. and today he celebrates his 6th birthday. >> he captured the hearts of all of us and we instantly fell in love with a little boy that we didn't even know his last name. >> reporter: initially planned as a prayer vigil, it turned into a celebration. >> oh, honey, we're celebrating everywhere. >> reporter: ethan is already o
